This is one of my favorite piazza in Rome, although it's hard to pick which one since Rome is surrounded with these amazing piazzas! The place is just simply beautiful!

Location is very good, just out side the Flaminio metro stop. Follow the signs from the metro station. The picture is taken from my next stop which is short walk up steps from the pizza.

enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to

Yes, just ask your host for the closest one. There is a Valeri Alimentari and further away a Carrefour Express for example.

Most of the tours start around Colosseo. You can reach Termini metro station by express, regional train or bus from airport. Booking around Termini metro station would be sensible.
